6:17pm
right now, a few clouds. but i do not think we're going to see any rain from those clouds. so partly cloudy right now. reagan national airport with a temperature at 81 degrees. did you notice this, too? doreen did. a little bit of humidity in the air today. dew point right now of 50% humidity. we've got the wind that's coming out of the south. and when this front that i'm expecting to move through here by tomorrow morning, behind it our winds will shift to out of the north. temperature currently up in gaithersburg, 77 degrees. good evening to you folks around leesburg, 81 degrees. and waldorf, 81 is your temperature. so let's take a look at the radar. it is dry throughout as the radar scans team 4 radar. dry here. you'll notice those showers along the line of this cold front. they're just falling apart as they make their way eastward. so i thought maybe we might see
6:18pm
a sprinkle or two, but i don't even think we'll get that. the next weather system will be coming in quickly at the end of the weekend, a storm system developing down south. that system will be pulling a lot of moisture with it and an area of low pressure early part of next week. we'll focus on this front coming through, nice conditions for tomorrow. area of high pressure moves in. we get some sunshine. and then for sunday, you're going to notice sunshine, and then a few clouds coming in, especially some of our southern-most counties south of d.c. down around stafford county. those will be coming from the new area of low pressure. it's going to follow the upper air flow. the area of low pressure organizing, so monday and tuesday is the time period. monday late, tuesday morning. spots like raleigh, north carolina, atlanta, georgia, may have some airport delays monday evening with the storm system. and the type of rain that it will dump. it will pull a lot of moisture out of the gulf of mexico.

carol just told me that rg-iii's mom braids his hair. that's so sweet. one more reason to love this guy. >> and here i am with the big pre-game question about pierre garcon. that's so funny. >> that's important, too. >> that's important, too, as the redskins and rams get ready. pierre still nursing that sore right foot, still limited at practice. he's being listed as questionable. mike shanahan said he is a game time decision. rg-iii will be back hoping to bring the same game changing ability to st. louis. now that the book is out on what he can do in the nfl, the rams "d" might be more prepared than the saints. not that mike shanahan seems concerned. the show-me state can be shown all they want, but that might not make it any easier for them. >> well, what defenses have to do, they have to account for him in the running game. they don't know how many times
6:46pm
we're going to run him in the game, or the possibility of running him. so we can run our offense and dictate what we want to do. not necessarily what they're going to do. so we can hopefully keep people off-balance. it's a fine line. but it's something that's been fun for us. experimenting with some of the things he's able to do. >> all right. to lambeau field last night. rivalry game between the bears and packers. under two minutes to go in the first half, green bay, a little trickery, faking the field goal. it's tom crabtree going in for 27 yards. packers up 10-0 at halftime. to the fourth quarter, you love that. well, bears trailing 16-3. packers fans love this. jay cutler, who talks trash before the game, throws out garbage, intended to brandon marshall, but picked off by williams. one of four interceptions in the game for cutler. he was also sacked seven times.
6:47pm
the very next play, aaron rodgers hooks up with the ageless donald driver. 26-yard touchdown. packers win 23-10. it's that time of year again. time to get ready for another lockout in sports. this time, it's the nhl's turn. the contract expires at midnight tomorrow night. that is not a lot of time, given how far apart the two sides are on the bargaining table. this would be the fourth work stoppage for the nhl in a decade. but when they do get back on the ice, we have good news, john carlson will be legally required to be with the caps. he re-signed carlson to a six-year contract extension. this is money for the caps fans, who have watched him take a dominating form. he led the team in blocked shots. setting a career high in goals scored for him. he's only 22 years old.
6:48pm
this is a no-brainer for karlsson looking at the long-term with this team. >> all i wanted was to be here a long time. i think that just some of the preferences that i've had, since i've got here. it has a lot to do with just really liking this team, liking this city, and liking our fans. i obviously wanted to be here. >> kind of a shutdown role. i thought he did a great job at it. and i'm sure there's a lot of room for him to grow as a player. very solid. and very happy for him. >> happy for john and the team. when will we see him on the ice? stay tuned. all eyes will be on the nationals as they open up the final series with the braves in atlanta. they currently lead the braves by 8 1/2 games in the division. back to the redskins, many believe the skins stole the number two pick away from the

rams, and head coach jeff fisher to get rg-iii. now the skins are stealing his look, guys. fisher's mustache is legendary in the league. so the rams are having a stash give away on sunday. there's even an app for it. so here's a look at what happened during some free time in this week's redskins locker room time. show everybody. if you just stay straight, i'm going to see what jeff fisher's stash looks like on you. not that you can't look more hip. >> maybe i could. >> you actually imitated his look, his facial expression. are you ready to see what you look like with -- >> let's check it out. my stash doesn't come in that thick. i usually keep it trimmed that good. if i can get one that thick, i might go for it. >> cheese. from a cherry creek guy. >> i wish i could grow that in real life. >> the ladies are going to love that. >> my wife wouldn't, though.
6:50pm
>> he looks like a psycho in that picture. >> i do. >> that makes you look tougher. >> i look more like the guy on the box of oatmeal, i think. >> i've never rocked a stash, but i'll rock one for you. >> you're a super smart guy already. mix it up a little. >> my wife wouldn't enjoy that. >> nick's going with the smile. i see facial here here. >> some day. >> i'll e-mail it to you. impress the ladies. >> oh, yeah, i'm going to post it on twitter and see what everybody thinks. >> if only we could -- >> it works on some of them. >> we'll have to get shanahan to do it. i didn't even get a chance to ask him. the pr guy was like, please don't ask him. >> who doesn't look wiser, more polished.
6:51pm
>> big old grisly man mustache. >> i think they need to be studying the playbook. >> that was me, actually. they were very accepting of my request. but i have italian heritage, so let me know if mine starts to come out. you guys are escaping. i haven't been here long enough to stash you up. but i've known haley for a long time. let's show you dan hellie. okay, there's hellie. photographer kiss kchris kerwin got me. everyone having some fun. >> at least you're all on the -- >> there's the sports team at news4. >> good stuff. thank you, carol. coming up, a resume with a view, and wait until you see who gets to live there.
